Local Businesses Invited To FREE Crime Conference

PCC Martyn Underhill

9:16am 24th October 2014

Dorset's Police and Crime Commissioner is offering local businesses FREE advice on how they can guard against crime.

Martyn Underhill is co-hosting a conference in Bovington next month with the Wessex Federation of Small Businesses.

Dorset's Chief Constable will also be there - and the day will include 5 workshops covering everything from cyber crime to shop lifting and counterfeit goods.

Mr Underhill said: “Following the success of the inaugural conference last year, businesses indicated that they wanted this to be an annual event as it provides such an excellent opportunity to receive up to date information on business crime prevention and to network and share ideas with other businesses from across Dorset.”

FSB Development Manager, Neil Eames said: “Crime against business is a massive issue and has huge cost implications. We are delighted that the Police and Crime Commissioner is keen to work with the FSB to raise awareness of this type of crime. Assistance from the Police is critical to reduce this burden and barrier to growth for small firms. The feedback from local businesses at last year’s Conference was that it was hugely helpful and also of significant benefit to focus on providing information for businesses. We are delighted to support the PCC in this initiative.”

The free conference will take place at the Bovington Park Business and Conference Centre, Cologne Road, Bovington, BH20 6NU, on Tuesday 4th November, from 10am to 3.30pm.
